No5 Barristers’ Chambers has announced that Lucy Coulson has joined its Personal Injury and Regulatory groups.
According to the firm, Coulson has expertise in all aspects of personal injury and regulatory matters.
In personal injury law, she accepts instructions on both multi-track and fast-track matters, with an emphasis on employers’ liability and public liability cases. She also regularly advises in high value cases involving complex liability, causation and quantum issues.
No5 added she has built a reputation for her “excellent manner with vulnerable clients, being both thorough and approachable”.
Coulson was appointed to the Attorney General’s Civil Regional C Panel in 2020, and is now regularly instructed by government departments, including the Ministry of Justice, Home Office and Department of Work and Pensions, in legally complex and sensitive matters.
In regulatory proceedings, she is regularly instructed by the Teaching Regulation Agency in professional misconduct proceedings against teachers. She has acted in a range of cases, including cases involving allegations of historical sexual abuse, vulnerable parties and factually complex multi-handed proceedings.
In addition, she has also recently been instructed by the Care Quality Commission in the Health, Education and Social Care Tribunal.
Coulson joins the firm having previously practised from 18 St John Street Chambers, Manchester, since the completion of pupillage in 2016.
Head of the Personal Injury Group, Henry Pitchers QC, said: “we are delighted to welcome Lucy to No5 and to the PI Group. In her five years of tenancy in Manchester, she has built a formidable practice. She will be a great addition to our thriving team.”
